? really? and it's not just one out of touch tv personality saying it. congresswoman michele bachmann says quote, president obama can't wait to get americans addicted to crack cocaine of dependency on more government health care. addicted to crack cocaine, comparing health care opportunity to getting hooked on crack cocaine. let's remember this comes from the same esteemed member of congress who once said that obama care, quote, literally kills people. but the nastiness doesn't end there. here's rush limbaugh today. >> school kids, i found out, still going to get breakfast, lunch, snack, ecstasy, whatever else they get. all of the welfare checks and all of the food stamp cards are still usable. they have not been shut down. everybody in obama's base depending on government is going to have a fine day. >> so what's with all this coded language? food stamps, drugs, slavery. is this really about the health care bill? or is it about something more personal? and ugly. joining me now is dana mil bank and joe madison. thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> joe, this is a pattern now, so what's
